Allen got his first significant playing time this weekend. And he acquitted himself nicely. He wound up with a few passes thrown his way, but had a tackle and an interception. Suddenly, he's putting pressure on Derek Hagan for rookie of the year honors. Hagan had 1 catch for 7 yards in the game.
By the way, Allen had a great quote over the weekend. I can't find it speciifcally, but it was something like 'this defense is hard, and though I'm not the brightest guy, I'm not an idiot.'
